3. ## Deflection Connection

This is a non exam question, but this is a design connection problem I have seen and would like to get a better grasp of- are any structural engineers here familiar with slip connections to deal with partition deflection? I have seen them with the top track (see image) directly to the underside of ceiling. Have you seen any with connections that may not but up directly against the ceiling? How does one detail a deflection connection for a sloped roof condition? My thought is you cannot have the track up against ceiling?

5. ## Bracing/Connectors

This is great- thanks!! @MA_PE

7. ## Trusses

Which type of open web truss series
8. ## Bracing/Connectors

MA_PE, Thanks for your quick reply! Can you explain this in simpler terms to me? Thank you again!
9. ## Bracing/Connectors

Does anyone have thoughts on this question?
10. ## CONNECTORS

Thank you @Hemi79! I would love to hear others' thoughts on this as well. My guesses are: bolt diameter, stress of bolt, and thickness. One of my textbooks says strength of connected parts can also help define.
11. ## Slab

Awesome, thank you! @youngmotivatedengineer
12. ## Slab

I did do some research on this and am simply confirming!
13. ## CONNECTORS

Let me be more specific, if you could kindly review, I would appreciate the help! Of these factors, which is important in determining connectors used, in minimizing shear stress? shank length stress of bolt diameter of bolt duration of load thickness of material finish of bolt
14. ## Forces

This is all that was given! I’m sorry it’s so bare, just looking for guidance on my solution. I have to solve for that force.
15. ## ductwork

Understood, thanks!
16. ## Forces

For the fun of it Thoughts on how to solve?
17. ## Change in Beam Length

Thanks for your response! My question is whether, and sorry if this is a stupid question, but is it 110 degrees difference? (70 - -40)

The question didn't specify- unfortunately, it only listed the materials. I am confused because wood is lightweight and metal is ductile, so theoretically either could work? I understand that it is a poorly written question and am just looking for a best guess. Thanks in advance for any advice!
19. ## ductwork

Understood, thanks!
20. ## Forces

Honestly, no other information given other than this. My solution was to do square root of ( 8^2 + 15^2 ) = 17. Then F= 200 x (17/8) = 425 as the solution
21. ## Wind question

Brittle veneer like masonry would be easiest to break when there is which one of the following conditions?: excess drift, uplift, low frequency vibration?
